    Hello, looking for early to mid 60's era correct steel wheels, 15x10, 15x8 Mopar bolt pattern. Who makes them? Summit sells some, but I think they look 70's era rather than earlier. These would be going on a Gasser style Plymouth until I can find and afford Magnesium. Thanks for the help.

    Perhaps 15 x 8 rear and 15 x 5 or 6 front would look more '60s gasser style?

    Dodge Ramchargers and Plymouth Traildusters had 15x7 and 15x8 wheels. But these wheels were very centered in their off-set. If you can use that I would look for them. Most Mopar car wheels were 5.5 and 6.5. There were some 6's but I haven't run across many.

    If you want that old look then have an old set of 40's-50's wheels widened, have a modern 15X10 hoop welded to an old center.

    Does anyone know what these wheels are from? I just picked these up on CL and are 15x6 5 on 5. I thought they were 70s era stock GM truck wheels, but the guy said that they're from the 60s. Idk. I haven't seen any like these with the little slots for the clips in a 5 on 5" bolt pattern. Anyone know for sure?

    Well after a little net surfing, I found that these wheels may be '65 Buick steelies. Now I'm wondering if I can actually use some dog dish caps with them or not. If anyone can give a little advise or suggestions, I'd appreciate it.

    I just want to give some props to Muttley for putting me on to Rally America. Talked with Jimmy this morning and they are custom making me a set of 15 x 10 with 3.5 backspace. Very pleasant experience, great customer service. He told me they would be on UPS end of day tomorrow. With shipping they were less than anyone else I have found. I will let everyone know how they look when they arrive.
